Why does description say, "Secures bottom of posts or columns to concrete"? This product is a post cap. The above quote seems to describe a post base. If an error, please correct website description. Thanks.

What kind of nails should I use? It says 16d common but should they be hot dipped galvanized? Aren't 16d common nails too long if I have to nail from both sides?
Asked by: edh
Yes, hot dip galvanized fasteners should be used with Z-MAX connectors. The nails will pass each other; 16d common nails (0.162" diameter x 3 1/2" long) are the required fasteners. Thank you!
